Dear DCARA Board of Directors,

We are writing to inform you that as a result of the Board's lack of communication or response to community's demands, DCARA staff and the management team have arrived at a decision today, during the Full Staff Meeting, that we will conduct a series of agency-wide direct actions, starting April 29-May 3rd. The goal of the direct actions is a resolution of the community's demands including the reinstatement of Raymond Rodgers.

The management team is proposing to have a meeting with the entire board on Tuesday, April 23rd, 2019, with the goal of addressing the demands and finding resolutions.

We anticipate your speedy response.

The Management Team
